Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aggressive natural killer cell leukemia (ANKL) is a rare type of leukemia. It is rapidly progressing and the outcome is poor, with short survival. There is paucity of reports of ANKL in the Indian pediatric literature. We report a pediatric ANKL case that is in complete continuous remission after four years.
